  • Motor control: affirm that a rectangle can be driven with less than 1m error
  • Power
    • Production & Consumption (incl. per-device usage: comms, SBC, LIDAR, stereoscopy, driving)
    • Battery: temperature, voltage, in/out current logging
  • Communications: affirm that heartbeat sent every 60s to field and ground basestation
  • Obstacle avoidance: stereoscopy performance analysis in low contrast environment
  • Basestation
    • Field: rover operator affirms that QGC / APMPlanner is functional to send waypoints and view live telemetry
